  1. I feel the Shoutout command could be improved by allowing channels to configure an auto shoutout to happen when a channel raids. Limits should be placed on when the Raid auto shoutout occurs such as
    Raiding VIPs
    Raiding channels followed by the creator
    Raiding Subscribers
    Raiding Followers
    ect.

  2. There should be an option to set up a bot without making a new account.

    How it would work?
    You would have a bot tab, which allows you to get a link to connect other services to it like streamelements, streamlabs, etc

    What are the benefits:
    1) people don't have to get their bots a subscription
    2) it's extremely easy to customise
    3) no one has a reason to create bot accounts unless it's meant with malice. Which would help a ton with things like tracking follow bots and hate raid bots.

  3. The /poll action isn't working for me on desktop or mobile. I've tried different browsers too. Not sure if it was happening to anyone else or just me. The button to open to interface shows when I type /poll but it doesn't open anything. /prediction works and all that but just not poll. I'm just a mod at the moment so I can't access the full dashboard to do it that way.

  4. Hello,

    My suggestion involves a small rework of the current broadcast time (stream uptime). I think it would be nice to separate it by category and then display the total uptime, for example:

    [Game Icon] 1:30:00 [Game Icon] 1:00:00 [Total] 2:30:00

    It doesn't necessarily have to be shown directly on the stream interface; it could be displayed as a tooltip on mouse hover or when clicked. This way, viewers could see how much time the streamer has been playing or doing activities in a specific category.

    I have created an example image for reference (tooltip on mouse hover)

    Apologies…

  5. Dear Twitch Execs,

    I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to express my concern regarding the recent introduction of "Hype Chat Pricing by Country" on Twitch. While I appreciate the efforts to cater to a global audience and acknowledge the need for regional pricing adjustments, the current implementation has resulted in significant disadvantages for many currencies.

    The new pricing structure, as illustrated by the statistics below, reveals a consistent 30% increase across various tiers:

    $1-Tier costs 1.20 EUR, equivalent to $1.30 (30% increase)
    $5-Tier costs 6 EUR, equivalent to $6.52 (30.4% increase)
    $10-Tier costs 12 EUR, equivalent…

  6. Give channel moderators the power to shout out someone in chat by clicking their username and selecting a "shout out" option (another way of shouting them out vs. using /shoutout @username).

  7. We’re testing more ways to make it easier for creators to recognize new and returning viewers in chat with additional chat highlights for Mentions, Mods, and Subs. You can toggle individual highlights on or off to focus on a specific type of viewer you want to recognize, like highlighting important messages from your mods or showing love to your subs.

    These highlights will not be visible to viewers in chat.

    Note: This feature is a limited experiment and we will monitor feedback before deciding to make these highlights more widely available. You may see additional highlight options as we experiment…

    Looking for Feedback  ·  Danky responded

    Hey everyone! Wanted to give you all an exciting update: The Raider Chat Highlight is now live to all streamers. You can adjust in your Chat Highlight settings how long raiders will be highlighted for in chat (5 mins, 15 mins, 30 mins, 1 hour, and 4 hours). Learn more here!

    What other Chat Highlights would you like to see added? Let us know what you think of this update in the comments below!

  8. Allow the partner badge to be blocked/disabled by the streamer in their own chat so NO partner badges appear in their chat.

    This can help with anxiety that may be caused by seeing this and not knowing the person or also block any passive advertising the partner may be doing/aiming for.

    so simply put:
    The streamer should be able to remove the partner badge from their own chat altogether for all users chatting in that chat.

  9. Since Twitch's chat is based off of IRC, in theory this should be somewhat simple.

    There would be a section in the Twitch dashboard under moderation where you could go and view the chat logs either for individual streams, or for certain dates, or use wildcards/keywords/filters/tags to find what you are looking for.

    This would help with moderating your chat, and make sure people were not abusing others while you're offline or away.

    I've heard that posting Twitch chat logs is against TOS or something, so you would have to outline restrictions and rules in the TOS and community guidelines…

  10. It would be nice to be able to view your own chat log, the same way moderators/streamers can view yours. And if you've been timed out, you can see which chat message got you a timeout.

  11. You can hide (delete?) one whisper if you click on the 'x' the right side of the whisper, but what if I want to delete all the whispers with one click. I can mark them all to read, but can't delete all. Please make it possible.

    Reason: I have a bot which autohost many channels. Means every channel the bot user visits gets an whisper what says about 'welcome on my channel...'. So now, I have to delete hundreds of messages to be able to see never, real messages (because I turned off whisper possibility and allow for followers/follows only).

  12. This could be a customizeable badge that only shows up locally (other users cant see it). There are a few ways this can be useful such as:

    1. Being able to mark friends so you can see if they are chatting in the same room as you.

    2. Tagging yourself so your own messages can be seen easier in screenshots.

    3. Tagging the person you are chatting with in a busy channel so you can easily see their messages before they get buried under lines of spam. (Ablility to make it temporary maybe)

    If you need to you can have it saved as…

  13. I've often found it to be a bit of an annoyance when I have a custom badge (the one that overrides your global badge) set in a channel and then I take some action such as cheering bits of gifting a sub and my custom badge automatically gets updated and then I have to go change it back to what I want it to stay as. I understand the feature in and of itself is nice to have and in many cases I may want the automatic updated badge, but I would like to have an option (ideally on a…

  14. I have been with this bug for months, when the Slow Mode is enable (doesn't matter what time is set) after a send a message is shows "you can chat in (absurd time like 4h 9m)", this only happens on PC, so i can't send any message, i have to use the cellphone to send something (because the bug doesn't happen there) or ask to the MOD to turn it off Slow Mode which isn't nice when there is 1300 people watching, REALLY annoying and doesn't make sense, would be a relief if someone fix that.

  15. I am a very active twitch user, and whisper a LOT of people daily, but after a certain amount of whispers, you MUTE me... and I can no longer whisper.
    There is no explanation, telling me that I sent too many, nothing... so I thought it was a bug, but it turns out you probably have a daily limit. You may want to reconsider that as your platform is quickly growing. Put it up to 200 or something. Or unlimited really, up to you but I hope that you change this feature.

  16. I would like to NOT see bots listed under "users in chat". It is annoying and I can't tell who is a real viewer and who is a bot.

  17. When watching popular channels, the chat is often a wall of emote spam not saying anything, and any 'actual' chat messages disappear too fast to read. It would be very useful to hide any messages that are just repeated emotes.

  18. So after years of chatting to others in whispers with no complaints Twitch is now trying to make me verify my account for some strange reason which I will not do as you have not proven yourself safe with personal data and I also do not wish to give you my phone number etc. This is a gross overstep for little gain as people who want to contact people in whispers to be awful or create fake accounts can just create new accounts with fake numbers or some such not to mention phone numbers that are not accepted by twitch…

  19. Many streamers have their bots use emotes. Currently the streamer needs to gift their bot a subscription in order to do this. However, this seems wasteful and unnecessary since the bot isn't using any video bandwidth and therefore causes limited costs to Twitch.

    Twitch should give emote access to all known bots, and for bots that use custom accounts (such as MixItUp bot) allow the account holder to mark those accounts as a bot (with Twitch regulating this by only allowing those "bot" accounts to view chat and prevent those "bot" accounts viewing the actual video content of streams so…

  20. Looking at my dashboard with pinned on the top of the chat gifters ranking - it let set up only Daily, weekly, monthly and all time ranking. I just wonder, why there isn't yet Current Year ranking.
    IMHO, i would REALLY appreciate this one set-up. i'm sure, some of creators also would like to use it instead.
    THANKS 8)
